Manchester City might have just won their fifth Premier League title on Tuesday night but there’s been more trolling than celebrations on social media since they were confirmed champions.
City’s third league title in four years was secured when Leicester beat Man Utd 2-1 at Old Trafford, ensuring Pep Guardiola’s side have an unassailable lead.
A few fans of the club gathered outside the Etihad to celebrate but footage of these celebrations has provided fodder for opposition looking to mock the ‘Citizens’
Many people noted the fact that City’s fans barely numbered over 20, appearing to validate the common assertions that Man City don’t have any fans.
Some City supporters tried to justify the low number of fans, stating that COVID-19 restrictions had prevented them from gathering in larger numbers.
Fans of Liverpool, who won the league last year, responded with pictures of the celebrations outside Anfield at the peak of the coronavirus pandemic.
